This cheerful red Cardinal mug is created by carving the image into the clay; this is called sgraffito. The mug is slab built with a folded seam down the back, satin underglaze, and a shiny red glaze for these lively birds. A blue sky is in the background with accents of green on the leaves and the lining of the mug.
Jennifer, a full-time potter in Wake Forest, NC., creates a marriage between aesthetics and function, through distinctive use of color and form. Starting with a practical and useful form, the pottery becomes a functional palette for layers of colorants and carving. Finding inspiration in the endless imagery of the mountains and coasts of North Carolina, her pottery reflects it's vibrant colors with the earthy brown of the clay and the contrast of mattes and velvets against shiny and hard surfaces.
The mug measures approx 5" tall x 2.5" wide.
Perfect gift for a bird lover!
